Scottie Pippen

There are almost enough for a full basketball squad. NBA great Scottie Pippen has expanded his family to eight kids and loves to show off his large and beautiful brood on social media.

In 1987, the legendary NBA player’s then-girlfriend, later-wife Karen McCollum, gave birth to their only child, Antron Pippen. Although they finally married the knot in 1989, their marriage didn’t last long and they ended up divorcing the following year in 1990. The death of Antron, 33, was confirmed by Scottie in April 2021.

It is with great sadness that I tell you that I had to say goodbye to my eldest son, Antron, yesterday. The former Chicago Bulls player said on social media, “The two of us had a passion for basketball and we had endless chats about the game.” I think Antron would have made it to the NBA if he hadn’t been plagued with severe asthma. I am very pleased with the guy Antron turned out to be because he never let anything discourage him.

Scottie Pippen Family

In 1994, Scottie and Sonya Roby, a fashion model, had their second set of children, twins named Taylor and Tyler. Tragically, Tyler passed away only nine days after she was born.

Scottie and his then-fiancée Yvette De Leon had their daughter Sierra in February 1995, and he and Larsa Pippen started a family that now includes Scotty Jr. (2000), Preston (2002), Justin (2005), and Sophia (2007).

Scotty Jr. continued in his father’s footsteps as an athlete by excelling as a basketball player at Vanderbilt University in Nashville and eventually signing an NBA contract in June 2022. In the same month, the Los Angeles Lakers signed Scotty Jr. to play alongside Shareef O’Neal, son of basketball great Shaquille O’Neal.

Scottie told People in September 2022, “I’m incredibly proud of him.” I feel it is inappropriate for me, as a parent, to continue serving as his coach or mentor on the court. There came a time when I spread my own wings and flew, and eventually, he will, too.

Scotty Jr. knows that his father will always support him.

The Lakers player was quoted as saying to the media source, “I’m just accustomed to people constantly wanting photographs and signatures from him, so I’ve been around it.” But even while I was at school, we still had daily conversations. He never missed one of my games.
